The Betrayal of Srebrenica: A Commemoration

From January 29th to February 29th Boston College will be showcasing a Photographic exhibition "The Betrayal of Srebrenica: A Commemoration." The exhibit is presented by Lisa DiCaprio and features photos by Paula Allen.
According to an overview of the exhibit by BCHeights.com "
The exhibit encompasses four themes: the war in Bosnia, specifically Srebrenica, the determination of the survivors, the human rights issue of those "missing," and the 10-year commemoration for which DiCaprio and Allen were present.

Besides Boston College, the exhibit has been featured at other colleges, such as Washington and Lee University.

Thanks for the info--I'm kicking myself for not knowing this was at Washington and Lee, which is only two or three hours from where I live.

I tried to find some of the photos featured in the exhibit online-but I wasn't able to find any. Although, I only did a very cursory google search.

I found one of the photos at http://www.antioch-college.edu/Antiochian/archive/Antiochian_2006spr/pdfs/Spring2006Antiochian.pdf
along with a very interesting eulogy of Coretta Scott King.
